There’s been a sizable contingent of people who’ve been praying, begging, and pleading for Community alum Donald Glover to be cast as Miles Morales, the alter-ego of Spider-Man in an adaptation of Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man comic. And their wish has come true—if Glover voicing the character in an animated TV series based on the comic counts.
The show is called Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors, otherwise known as the third season of the preexisting Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon on Disney XD. Glover will voice Morales on the show, and who knows? Given the disappointing box office performance of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, maybe a big-screen adaptation of Ultimate Spider-Man is on the way.
The arc of Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors, which has Spider-Man traveling to various parallel universes and meeting his counterparts there (one of which is voiced by Glover) is set to air next year, but you can get a look at the meeting in the preview clip below.
